Hands down, these are the best healthy pumpkin recipes and desserts you’ll ever make! Simple ingredients and something for everyone! 

Healthy Pumpkin Recipes

It’s no secret that when September rolls around, I am in full pumpkin mode.

I literally go out of my way to find a means to add pumpkin in every single recipe. Being a starchy low carb vegetable, pumpkin can easily be used in dessert recipes, breakfast recipes, AND snack recipes.

For anyone who is skeptical that the pumpkin flavor may be overpowering, I promise you that you’d never be able to taste it. Pumpkin is neutral tasting and helps aid the texture of many recipes.

Why use pumpkin in recipes?

Pumpkin often replaces eggs and butter, helping make desserts moist on the inside, tender on the outside. When blended, it can be a fantastic mixed into sauces, frostings, and even chocolate. 

Is pumpkin keto and healthy?

For keto and paleo followers, pumpkin is a fantastic ingredient to have on hand. It’s starchy and has the texture of a sweet potato, minus the carbs and calories. For a half-cup serving, pumpkin yields a mere 40 calories, with 4 grams of net carbs.

The BEST Pumpkin Desserts

Brownies, cookies, pancakes, and muffins, there are delicious healthy pumpkin desserts for everyone.

These are the best secretly healthy desserts, that all contain pumpkin. I promise you, you’ll never know that there is any pumpkin in there, as the flavor can often be masked by chocolate, spices, or even just used as a starchy base.

    1. There is NOTHING wrong with having pumpkin ALL. YEAR. LONG. I was on a kabocha high in the spring, haha! I absolutely adore this lineup of recipes. Gotta get some kabocha now!

    2. I’m in for pumpkin all year long. As long as you fly over and make these recipes for me. I’ll pay in Swiss Cheese and chocolate and believe me, it is the real shit. Seriously, I love the look of the balls (of course) – totally pinned it. I’ll as Meghan to make them for me. While I am having a pumpkin mojito. (make a recipe please)

    3. What a delicious way to get ready for the upcoming pumpkin madness! I say we make one of these recipes each day and then see how long it takes for us to turn into a pumpkin. I put the over/under at 8 days. By my count, that’s a lot of deliciousness before I turn into a gourd. I think I can handle it! 🙂

    4. What a delicious looking recipe roundup! I definitely need to make at least half of these this fall 🙂 Some years I’m not into pumpkin until November, but this year I already have been craving it. I have an open can of pumpkin in my fridge just begging to be used in one of these recipes!

    5. i’ll save this menu in my mind, so that next week in every-morning my kids will have their own healthy breakfasts.
      many thanks from me. 🙂
